I had to take off all my cold weather gear just now...was out in the field and got HOT.

Yes, I am now in my t-shirt. My long sleeve shirt (I own one), is back in the closet.

You are a bunch of dumbasses. [EDIT: so am I, apparently; if you tried reading this before I revised to make some--just some--sense...]

But, don't decide to move to AZ.

Unless you bring lots of $$, don't plan on drinking any of our water, and can do yardwork, dishwashing or maidservice for ~ $2 per hr.

[JK on the "dumbass" comment, of course...but there IS a reason everyone "up" from "us", counts the days til they can retire and move south]

Well, at least there's good jobs to be had here (NYC)... and my real estate value is till going up, albeit more slowly. Y'all can drive your 20-yr old trucks and shrivel in that 110 degree summer heat.

110 hot? Surely you jest...that's just getting started.

You and jots and Diamondhead and advokat. You smart asses (as opposed to us dumb asses) need a good winter 'honeydew'. Some yellow snow slushies. Some ice chipping for a few hours. Good ol' shoveling the sidewalk for... a while. There's more , but my mind is all strangled up.




WT, I'll work for $1.50 and bring my own water. I'll even recant my Kantian ways.

Snow? Hmmm. I do believe I can see some snow from here. It's that white stuff on the Himalayas. The snowy glacial peaks look so lovely and photogenic, sparkling in the crisp sun on this sunny plant-filled verandah from which I am penning this missive. Oh my, it's SOOO hard to see the screen in the BRIGHT SUN ...

Ah, is that my chai coming? Why thank you! Yes, I think I will just sit here and sip some chai in the sun and read about those terrible dreadful blizzards back in the land of cold rain and snow ...

(I refuse to be out smart-assed. I think I'll be the winner here unless Bali and Thailand come on and out-gloat me ... or unless it might bother any would-be refugees from cold rain and snow that we also only have a couple of hours of electricity a day. And this morning we had no water, so the toilets wouldn't flush.)

Are you kidding me? So you have to get a little retro in the B-room (outhouse?) and have to 'suffer' with roving electricity outages.
Double smart ass.
I'll show You how to build an igloo.

Outhouse indeed. This is the big sophisticated city, fella. Our cows walk on pavement.

(Well, OK, not on MY street, exactly. But the next street over? That one's paved. Partly, anyway.)

Cool link. Good teaching tool, actually. It gives the temperature in metric and English both! I really didn't know the temps translated as being in the 70s and the lows in the high 50s. Kinda funny, actually, cuz everyone's complaining about the cold. (I kid you not. I get asked why I'm not wearing a sweater. Um, maybe cuz it's not cold?)

Now go out and warm up in your igloo.

Right now, not much. Monsoon season, quite a bit more.

smart ass? HA! I will take that as a compliment. Seriously who would have thought Alaska has more mild weather? At least where I am. Up North is for lunatics. If I get another Seattle winter for a summer I will have to move though.

Are you saying our economy leaves something to be desired? Just because a house that sold for $200,000 2 years ago just sold at auction for $35,000 doesn't mean we got troubles.

Wait, maybe it does.

Either way, I'm just happy to seen new legislation introduced recently that actually loosens the gun laws in AZ. I mean, it's been getting so a guy actually has to fill out a form on the internet to get a concealed weapon permit. Freakin' liberals.

Yes, the wife and I were chatting with # 1 son (a dumbass too, BTW), and mentioned everyone's getting their "bill" thru now before someone does something drastic (like enforcing background checks or some such)...he asked which "side" we were "on", and I mentioned of all the bills, I was in favor of the "kindergartners can pack" bill, the one in which it will be legal for a "little person" (literally) to carry a clip three inches longer than they are tall.

Who has time to re-load when they've increased class size each yr?

[JK y'all!]

Non-PC line of the day.

Well done, I'm still laughing.

I take your point.

On the other hand there's this little business about the guns out there ...
